of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy, and you did. as you say now that you're not going to negotiates on the debt ceiling this year, why should house republicans take that seriously and say if we get to the one minute to midnight scenario that you're not going to back down? >> well, first of all, juliana, let's take the example of this year and the fiscal cliff. i didn't say that i would not have any conversations at all about extending the bush tax cuts. i just said we wouldn't extend them for the wealthy. we didn't. you can argue that during the campaign i said -- i set the criteria for wealthy at $250,000, and we ended up being at $400,000, but the fact of the matter is millionaires and billionairres are paying significantly more in taxes just as i said. so for, you know, from the start, my concern was making sure that we had a tax code that was fair and it protected the middle class, and my biggest priority was making sure that middle class taxes did not go up. the difference between this year and 20112 is the fact that we have already made $1.2 trillion in cuts, and at the time i

's instant opposition is not about raising taxes on the wealthy, like last year. nor is it about proposing to raise the tax cuts. this time the issue is gun safety, including universal background checks supported by nearly nine out of ten americans. the president, once again, is taking his message to the people. as did he with _#$40. >> i promise you the american people, your voices, made a difference on this debate zoosh as he did with _#my2k. >> if there's one thing that i have learned, when the american people speak loudly enough, lo and behold, congress listens. >> yesterday the white house launched _#now is the time. >> this will not happen unless the american people demand it. >> the president has a new website explaining the proposed laws. he penned an op ed in the connecticut post today, and he is planning to hit the road to sell his plan with speeches around the country. as the white house tries to engage the public, senate majority leader harry reid will try to engage the senate. in a statement yesterday reid wrote "i am committed to insuring that the senate will consider legisla

. the republicans need to be able to run against barack obama as the tax and spend liberal who keeps plunging us into debt. this would allow them to do that and still not blow up the economy. i mean, the only thing here that we know for certain is that they are going to raise the debt limit. they're going to do it. they know it. we know it. it's just a matter of how messy it's going to be before that. the way that you know republicans many my opinion are not serious, where is their list of things? if spending is such a horrible thing and we have a spending problem, not a debt problem, show us your list. what is it you would like to cut? let's see it. the last time they showed it to us, it was the ryan plan to destroy medicare and turn it into a voucher, and then they ran away from that during the presidential campaign when they should have been showing it off. if they're so into cutting the deficit and they think spend issing the problem, show it off. let's see what you got. they don't want to do it. >> what i don't understand about this is why if you believe that ultimately they're going to hav

and without tax reform and without some spending plan that congress can accept and the country can accept, the poll also said that we're talking about obama before the show that the majority of americans believe what's hindering economic growth is the fact that washington continually finds itself at an impasse or a position around how to resolve what seem to be to me and i think a lot of americans commonsense balanced solutions that should be put forward. without that, all of this, i don't think, comes to fruition. >> let me say one thing before we go. michael, if, in fact, the ofa infrastructure does work, does that not then -- does that not mean now all future presidencies will have -- >> the eternal campaign. to some extent, you do already, but this will rachet up one notch. >> it's also -- the political parties have disintegrated in terms of power. the republican side, everything is -- >> understatements. >> i know. the tea party groups, the stuff, those are now the epicenters of the political power right now. it's not the rnc. what organize for action is going to do is take look the
